Abstract Mixed Media experiment slide show

Ive used Picasa to make this slide show, it has turned out a bit small, but it does work.. yippy. I would make it a bit bigger next time .. thats if I can remember how!

Magnificient Mums mixed Media Painting 
Step1,drawing with 4b pencil, oil pastels, water soluble pastels on A2 cartridge paperMagnificient  Mums Mixed Media Painting
step 2 I added a damp brush to blend some of the colours, I painted over the whole painting with Atelier binding medium to seal any water soluble areas I wanted to protect from future layers, it allows me to paint thick white paint over the mums without any bleeding. I then added more washes and pastel
The Close up allows you to see how much loose drawing I did. I really enjoy this style of working which I first did many years ago before I did any real structured  art study.

When is a drawing a painting? When is a painting a drawing? I would love to read your comments
